Player sustains injury in Burnley match
Manchester City suffered a major setback with the untimely injury to Kevin De Bruyne during their match against Burnley at Turf Moor. The talented Belgian midfielder, who had appeared to have fully recovered from his previous injury, had to be substituted by Mateo Kovacic in the 23rd minute.
De Bruyne had sustained an injury during the Champions League final against Inter Milan, but he seemed ready to start the season strong with Manchester City. Unfortunately, this latest setback comes as a huge blow to Pep Guardiola’s side, despite their 2-0 lead courtesy of Erling Haaland’s goals.
At the moment, it remains uncertain whether De Bruyne, who is 32 years old, will be fit and available for the upcoming European Super Cup clash against Sevilla. The two teams are scheduled to meet in Athens on August 16th at 21:00 CEST.
It has been a challenging start to the season for the Belgian international, as he also made a brief appearance as a substitute in the Community Shield final against Arsenal, playing only 23 minutes in the opening Premier League game.
